Spurs player ratings v Sunderland: Chadli impresses but Kane has a nightmare

Tottenham Hotspur drew 2-2 at Sunderland on Saturday - but it was a game they really should have won.

Hugo Lloris - 6/10

Not the Frenchman's best ever day in a Spurs shirt. Could have got a stronger hand to the ball for the first goal.

Eric Dier - 6/10

The young defender was booked as he failed to reach the heights of his first two appearances for Tottenham.

Vlad Chiriches - 6/10

The Romanian was lively but could not stop his side from conceding twice as they dropped two points they really shouldn't have.

Younes Kaboul - 5/10

Was poor for the first goal and then missed a good chance to make up for it by giving Spurs an instant lead.

Danny Rose - 7/10

The full-back gets his rating based on his ability getting forward. Rose was everywhere in an attacking sense. Whether that impacted on the defensive part of his game is another issue, however...

Mousa Dembele - 6.5/10

Hit the upright with a great shot from distance but found his influence limited at times. In the first 20 minutes of today's game, Spurs enjoyed an astonishing 72 per cent of possession. They did not capitalise.

Etienne Capoue - 6.5/10

Like Dembele, Capoue played a good game in midfield but failed to provide enough influence for Mauricio Pochettino's men to really take control.

Nacer Chadli - 8/10

Opened the scoring from a rebound and was extremely attacking, much like the rest of his team. Also delivered the cross across the box for Spurs' second. 

Christian Eriksen - 8/10

Another impressive performer for the visitors. Produced great passing, despite one or two being misplaced, and found himself in the right place at the right time to put Pochettino's side 2-1 up.

Erik Lamela - 7/10

Was extremely lively and showed enough promise to suggest he can become a real gamechanger for Spurs. That said, Lamela just could not take his chances. He hit the bar before Sunderland's equaliser and could have won the game with a late free kick but sent it miles over the bar.

Emmanuel Adebayor - 7/10

Missed a good chance right after Tottenham's first goal but was involved in most of their attacks. Overall, the Togolese forward was brilliant going forward. Spurs' lapses in defence were hardly his fault.


Harry Kane - 4/10

Despite coming on in the last few minutes, the striker scored a late own goal to cost his side two points. A nightmare cameo.

Aaron Lennon and Benjamin Stambouli also came on late on but with not enough time to make a positive enough impact. At least they didn't score an own goal, though...
